Poll: 64% of Gun Control Advocates Wrongly Think Gun Crime Up

According to a Rasmussen poll released on Friday, while gun killings have plunged 39 percent since 1993, and non-fatal gun crimes have dropped 69 percent in the same period, those who want gun control think that gun crime is up. Rasmussen reports that only 7 percent of adults believe there are fewer gun owners in the country than there were 20 years ago – and more importantly, 64 percent of those who want more gun control think that gun crime has escalated.

The poll was conducted May 8-9, 2013, and has a sampling error of plus or minus three percent.
